Classic (non race) Cars
De Tomaso Guarà (1995).
This is probably one of the coolest cars of the nineties, with concept car looks and a BMW V8 engine : the De Tomaso Guarà. It was the last project which founder and owner Alejandro de Tomaso put into the market, and was based on the underpinnings of the Maserati Barchetta Stradale prototype shown in 1991. The Guarà was constructed like a proper racecar,with a body made of Kevlar and other composites, fitted to a backbone chassis. The suspension is in true Formula 1 style with independent upper and lower wishbones with pushrod front and rear end suspension. The first examples, just like this one, were fitted with the reliable BMW 4,0 litre V8 engine producing 280 bhp, in combination with a 6-speed manual gearbox - also from BMW.
This example was delivered new in Germany, and had three owners in total. The last owner bought the car in 2009 from De Tomaso specialist Thomas Jäckel in Hamburg (Germany). A beautiful car, finished in the fantastic colour "Blu" which suits the Guarà incredibly well. The full leather interior is in matching blue, and oozes that typical conceptcar look from the nineties. This example has now 46.170 km, and is well documented with service invoices, the original manual and servicebook. Our De Tomaso Guarà is a very early example with chassisnr 004, and is still in fantastic condition despite the fact that it is actually used and as such not really a garage queen...
Following the factory ledger, only 39 Guaràs were constructed from 1995 until 2004, which makes it a very rare supercar. It was the very last De Tomaso made under supervision of marque founder Alejandro De Tomaso, and also the last real De Tomaso in production before the factory went bankrupt in 2004. With this limited number made, these cars don't come often available on the market. As there is an increasing interest in rare supercars from the nineties - even for the most prestigious concours d'elegance in the world - a De Tomaso Guarà will be your future entry ticket for any top class event. And because it looks dropdead gorgeous and drives like a proper racecar for the road, it is a lot of fun as well. A collectors car which you must buy now.
